What would you like to do?
Get IP of running docker container

Get docker container IP address by name


mkdir -p $HOME/bin
wget -O ~/bin/docker-container-ip
chmod +x ~/bin/docker-container-ip

Troubleshooting: You may additionally need to run the following command to ensure the script is available in your path. Additionally you need write-permissions for your $HOME folder

export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin


docker-container-ip {container-name}
if [[ $# -lt 1 ]]; then
echo "Must provide a name"
exit 1
# uses
docker inspect -f '{{range .NetworkSettings.Networks}}{{.IPAddress}}{{end}}' $1
